The program of the first edition noticed the performances of four international and professional theater companies:

Wolf sign theater – Finland
“Hatching day !” show

We can hear a strange sound from under the dandelion. There appears to be a crack on the surface of an egg. The crack starts to get bigger… Hatching day! is a performance about the joy of growing! Under the big dandelion small wonders happen and meanwhile a peculiar creature grows up to become a human being!

Hatching day! Is a visual and physical puppet theater without words. It is full of delightfully funny scenes that relate to children´s natural sense of physical humor. The performance has been created in co-operation with professional artist from both dance and puppet theater.

The performance is for 3-10 years old and adults

A performance for 0-9 months. Based on the Romanian legend of the Ursitoarea, a fairy who visits new babies and wishes them well on their journey in life, Silver Tree engages very young babies and their carers (who sit under the silver and crystal tree) in 25 minutes of song, movement and blessing in a gentle and relaxing environment. Silver Tree is performed by Cliodhna Noonan, directed and choreographed by Giovanna Caire and designed by Margarita Smith.

Pandemonium Teatro- Italy
"Magic cube" show

One and The Other are two characters who discover a strange world made only of cubes: big cubes and small cubes, red cubes and blue cubes. To One, those cubes are simply cubes. The Other can create a whole world using the cubes instead, and step by step he involves One in the game.Two very different views of the world collide to create a wonderful clowning performance with horses, motorbikes, trains, castles, battles, love and even some tears. A cube can become a stool to sit on and chat, but also a wall that divides, like in wars...

Director: Tiziano Manzini

Actors : Walter Maconi,  Yuri Plebani or Luca Giudici

From 3 to 10 years old
